This is the frog that yesterday's posting (Vine Snake) was after to have for dinner. Luckily for the frog the snake missed its mark - at least that night :^)

A truly remarkable creature, the Gaudy Tree Frog better known as the Red Eye Tree Frog only comes out at night. This one was photographed after a short break of heavy rain in Tirimbina Reserve in Sarapiqui, Costa Rica. I used a Nikon SB-800 flash pointing up with the diffuser and reflector. This helped avoid heavy shadows from the frog and still light the background.

Hope you like the photo as much as I do and again thanks for all the great comments on previous images.

Yeah, good enough to be in National Geographic.
Fantastic shot. The colors are so beautiful.

Very fortunate encounter for you and very fortunate frog to avoid being eaten. I would think that with these colors, this fellow might be toxic enough to dissuade predators from even trying to eat them.

What amazing colors on such a little critter. I cannot wrap my mind around how creatures can evolve such amazing colors and patterns but I definitely can stand in awe at the process, lol. Very nice image with great detail and crisp clarity.

Thanks for sharing.
